Smile Make steam aliases private according to steam profile settings

Hello!
I thought it would be a good idea and or useful to make our previous aliases private if our steam profile is private or friends only.
It would also be useful if someone wants to join a game incognito..... >.>
just a thought

Good idea, I would like to erase that aliases history altogether.

It's useful for tracking fake profiles and finding impersonators, so no.

I say no too! Is very good for tracking bad players (and I not talking about skills).

Another way of finding/tracking players is getting their steam ID, there are a few interwebs pages that make it easy to find. I just thought it would be a nice option for people who don't want their aliases public ^.^

Exclamation Opinion:

Considering how often people change their aliases, I would prefer aliases to be visible as this helps you identify users/players more easily and aids in resolving of fraudulent activities.
